Fake news king Jay Sonza struck again and once more humiliated himself by spreading his latest fake news.
In wanting to get a scoop and possibly attract huge attention on social media, the former broadcaster and known diehard Duterte supporter posted fake news claiming that Julia Barretto was pregnant with Gerald Anderson’s baby.
In a Facebook post, Sonza claimed that Gerald got Julia pregnant during the quarantine period. Sonza who seemed to be so sure about his news addressed the subject as his neighbor to somehow make it more reliable.
“Congratulations sa aking kapitbahay sa Congressional Village, Bahay Toro, Quezon City.” (Congratulations to my neighbor in Congressional Village, Bahay Toro, Quezon City.)
“Napatunayan nina Visoy (Visayan tisoy) Gerald Anderson at anak nina Dennis Padilla at Marjorie na si Julia Barreto na kapuwa hindi sila baog. After months of love lockdown and ESQ (exact sex quadrant) – may nabuo sa sinapupunan ni Julia.
“Nahinayak ang batang Dadiangas. nasiyot man jud oi. kapugngan pay tren, dili ang gugmang gauros uros tawon.
“Happy Monday po. Makikibalita ako kung kailan ang kasal sa aking neighbour.”
However, to his embarrassment, Julia took to Instagram and posted a photo of her flat tummy, with the caption “FAKE NEWS” which was an obvious reference to Sonza’s claim on social media.
Netizens also reacted to Sonza’s claim with most of them defending Julia and others analyzing that Sonza might have been confused Julia with the reportedly pregnant Janella Salvador.
I think Jay Sonza confused Julia Barretto with this J actress who is rumored to be pregnant. #ThinkingOutLoud

akala cguro ng Jaytonta na yan na ang napabalitang buntis ay si julia imbes na si janella, masyadong boring cguro ang buhay ni jaytonta ngayon kaya gumagawa ng pekeng balita pra pag fiestahan.

Jay Sonza spreading rumours about Julia Barretto proves he is nothing but a chismoso with zero credibility. 😎

Pati love life ni Gerald Anderson at Julia Barretto, pinakikialaman na ni Jay Sonza.
I guess he has so much time on his hands as a disgraced former TV personality.

Sonza has been known for proliferating fake news on social media thus earning the monicker “Fake News King”.
Some of the most notable fake news he spread on social media were the history of ABS-CBN and the network’s executives, false claims about ABS-CBN’s Pantawid Pag-Ibig Program, and fake news about CNN Philippines’ shutdown due to COVID-19.
